  4. Well thank you for the info, so is the link you gave earlier fine?
  5. http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/products-model_Specification.aspx?id=C_00001656

    This TR2 THE 600P version is decent and made by FSP
  6. So is the PSU ok or what?
  7. The one I linked is the 600p which is good.
  8. But is the one I have currently ok or do I need to upgrade?
  9. There is 3 600 watt versions of the 600

    1=hec = junk

    2 =channel well = fair at best < I think you have this one tr2 600

    3=FSP= ok tr2 600p

    I still don't care for the PSU's they make , most are not very good.I recommend replacement.
  10. Best answer
    I would get a decent unit from Seasonic , XFX , Antec , or Corsair not the CX Series.
  11. Ok thx for the help
  12. Replace it , don't risk your other components , with an inferior PSU.
